Absolute3D offers a professional 3D scanning service from our fully equipped Melbourne scanning studio, or we can travel to any location around the Australia to create high-quality digital models at a time and place that’s convenient for you. Our state-of-the-art equipment can digitize an object to an accuracy of up to 20 microns.
Scanning is the first step in generating your 3D model. Next, we refine the surfaces if necessary, and output a detailed 3D model in any major mesh format including STL, OBJ, PLY, FBX, VRML and X3D (with optional texture/colour mapping).
Reverse engineering involves scanning a physical object to capture its dimensions, and creating a CAD model that matches either the original design intent or the as-built form of the item. When seeking to match the original design intent, it’s important to identify manufacturing defects and understand how components wear and degrade over time.
We use reverse engineering software to convert the output scan data into an editable solid model that’s compatible with your current CAD program. These models can be provided in neutral CAD formats such as IGES, STEP or Parasolid. Or we can provide native SolidWorks files with a complete feature tree, allowing for easy part modification if required. These models are constructed as if they were engineered from scratch, making them ideal for altering or redesigning parts.
We can also digitize your products and provide photorealistic 3D models. Everyone of these models was rebuilt from scratch using our sate-of-the-art 3D modeling software. Scan data, captured with our high resolution 3D scanners, was used to ensure dimensional accuracy. Click on the image to view in 3D.
If you want your product to stand out from the crowd, contact Absolute3D today. With our high-tech 3D scanners we can digitally capture any complex freeform object with pixel-perfect precision, freeing you from real-world constraints and giving your customers a compelling interactive experience. Our models are compatible with all leading modeling software including Blender, Modo, Z Brush, Maya, 3DS Max and more.

How we work
Upload photos or data
Take photos from different angles of the object so we get an understanding of the geometry. Please also include the approximate dimensions.
We prepare a quote
Based on the goals you defined and the given timeframe we send you a quote which you can approve online.
Send us the parts
Send the parts to our office. Alternatively we can 3D scan the parts at your location.
We 3D scan the parts and prepare the CAD data
We 3d scan the parts and prepare the CAD data in the format you specify. Eg. STL, STEP, IGES, X_T, etc.

We ship the parts back to you
Once the project is successfully completed we ship the parts back to you.
Some Of Our Clients
- This is the first time I’ve ever gotten anything scanned. The price was great and the responsiveness to my questions was even better! I’ve just started playing around with the step file in my CAD software and I’m super happy with how they’ve turned out. I’ll be using them for all my scanning needs from now on. – Sarah McKenzie
- I have engaged Absolute 3D for two projects to date. Couldn’t be happier with their services. Got the exact result i was looking for in a timely manner with excellent customer service along the way. – Dylan Auton
- Great service from Absolute 3d being able to scan a very complicated cast part and then reverse engineering it. Always replying to emails. Very recommended – Steven Darcy
